128w ago - EA Mobile Senior Producer Christophe Gomez has posted up a new video today spotlighting Tetris PSN in 1080p and 5.1 with PS3-exclusive multiplayer action!
To quote: We are launching Tetris on PlayStation Network and it'll be available to download from the PSN store in very early next year.
This version of Tetris boasts 5.1 Dolby Sound, 1080P HD graphics, plus six online and local multiplayer modes.
Of course, you can play Marathon mode by yourself in the boldest and brightest graphics ever, but what we're really excited about are three new PS3-exclusive multiplayer modes that will make this a must-have.
I can't go into much detail, but these new online, real-time multiplayer modes will be more fun and competitive than anything you've seen before.
A couple of weeks ago Alexi Pajitnov, the original creator of Tetris, got to try out this new PS3 version and absolutely loved it. And since we know how excited you are, we have a trailer ready to showcase just how awesome this gets.
Check it out above! This is going to be the definitive Tetris experience.
129w ago - Today SCEA Associate Producer Michael Pulst has announced that Top Darts for PlayStation Move is coming soon to PSN in 1080p!
To quote: Top Darts is a new PlayStation Move title coming soon to PSN, and it's a realistic darts game that is perfect for all users - from those who love to play darts often and know a lot of the classic games, to those more like me who enjoy playing but don't own a dartboard because the wall would look like Swiss cheese.
The developer, Devils Details, has been hard at work making this fun and challenging game to play along with your friends. They packed in classic dart games like 501, Around the Clock, and Cricket, as well as a large selection of other game modes.
For those who want to play with friends, Top Darts allows up to eight people to play in a range of games that are suited just for the multiplayer gaming experience. If you're on your own, work your way up the League and Cup modes to become a world-class darts player!
Top Darts doesn't just cater to the traditional darts player; there are also simultaneous game modes. This allows two players to play at the same time offering a fun and fast paced gaming experience.

To quote: "3D exacerbates the issue, requiring the system process two discrete interlaced images--one for each eye--to fake depth perception.
In an undated tech presentation by a Sony engineer, the engineer admits "rendering two images from the same hardware may require compromises or limit the possibilities," citing performance ("the scene must be rendered twice"), VRAM usage ("the frame buffer may be larger in some cases"), and resolution limits ("more pixels may be processed") as mitigating factors in the list of technical considerations."
According to Eurogamer, to quote: "Tt's simply the case that the new stereo 3D support built into the...
